Gallacher, 26, is an American Golf TV presenter living in London, however hails from sunny Perth. Teaming up with GolfWA, Chloe returned to her hometown over the festive break for a glance at some of our very best golfing facilities.
Fair to say it looked like she enjoyed herself, even venturing down south to take on the well-renowned Mandurah course, The Cut.
Chloe found herself at six of the best courses in WA. Take a look at what she had to say about each, with some phenomenal imagery to go with it!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Cut, the views are spectacular looking over the ocean. I played the back 9 and each hole had something unique, even the holes that were inland were great. It’s challenging course for all levels of golfers, and course is in top condition with immaculate greens. It’s a course I’ll be recommending to everyone. Only advice is take plenty of golf balls as I lost a few in the rough and wasn’t going in to get it with the snakes about!
- Picturesque views
- Challenging holes

Lake Claremont was great, I loved that it was quick round but also a good round! The conditions of the greens were fantastic just like any other course. The huge practice green at the clubhouse was a great facility! Highly recommend it for beginner golfers or anyone who wants to fit in a round of golf before or after work!
- Terrific course for beginners
- All holes are Par 3’s
- Quick round for those looking to practice

I really enjoyed the practice facilities at MLGC, so much on offer with a variety of bunkers and putting greens you can improve your game and have fun at the same time; the 19th hole even feels like you’re playing on the course as it’s in great condition.

Kwinana Golf Club

Kwinana golf course is in great condition with immaculate and fast greens, it’s a very friendly club that welcomed everyone along. It was surrounded by beautiful trees and wildlife. I particularly enjoyed the stretch of holes from 12- 16 as they were very long and hilly which made a change of pace from other metro courses. I would recommend this course to any international visitors as it’s a very Australian course with native flora and fauna.
- Hidden gem- fantastic greens
- Prolific bird life surrounds the course
- Welcoming vibe

I really enjoyed playing at Royal Perth Golf Club, from the moment you walk in your welcomed to a friendly club with an amazing club house and members area. I found that this course really tested my skills as a golfer, as the fairways were really tight with hard small greens, precision shots are key here! it also a treat playing a championship course.
- ‘Old style’ golf course
- Small greens
- Narrow fairways – fast greens
